Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, WA Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County Commission:

I strongly oppose the construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WA which would transport coal on trains and ships throughout the Northwest. It is difficult to say "no" to jobs in this shrinking economy. But it is a moral crime to continue burning fossil fuels. Yes, I drive a car. 42 mi. to the gallon in the city. Still pollutes. But the impact of all this dirty fuel shipped around the world is enormous. I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.

Thank you.

Marla Smith
